The Chiropractic Board of Australia has had enough:
“We will not tolerate registered chiropractors giving misleading or unbalanced advice to patients, or providing advice or care that is not in the patient’s best interests,” chairman Phillip Donato said.
Dr Donato said chiropractors should only provide evidence-based treatment and anyone with concerns should report them. [Sydney Morning Herald August 9 2013]
Jeffrey Brooks is a member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia. His business associate is Xavier Mirouze. Together they practice business at Sydney Chiropractic Care. This abomination, presented as a series of screenshots, is what passes for their business’s Facebook page:
Name the crackpot conspiracy, it’s here:
The pièce de résistance. A meme shared from the page of the World’s Worst Person™, Erwin Alber. Vaccines with added skull and crossbones. What could be more deranged?
As is common with chiropractors, the fine people at Sydney Chiropractic Care also have no regard for advertising recommendations as set by the Board:
Here is what the Chiropractic Board of Australia has to say about offering discounts as inducements in advertising. Again, the Board needs to clean up this section. It is too open to abuse, as is obvious:
6.6 Use of gifts or discounts in advertising
The use of gifts or discounts in advertising is inappropriate, due to the potential for such inducements to encourage the unnecessary use of regulated health services.
If a practitioner or a person advertising a regulated health service does use a discount, gift or any other inducement to attract patients or clients to a service, the offer must be truthful, and the terms and conditions of that offer must be set out clearly in the advertisement.
Again, it’s either “inappropriate”, or it’s not.
Over to you, once more, CBA.
